What a wonderful experience! Angela was professional, caring, and thoughtful. She kept communication throughout, both before as well as during and after. When she came over for the initial visit, she immediately bonded with my pet, getting acquainted and learning the mannerisms and habits. During the sitting, she even sent pictures to me and explained activities with my pet in the home, a personal touch. She left the house neat and clean for my return, and I could tell my pet was well-cared for while I was away. She was happy. I am so grateful to Angela for what she provided and how she took time to care about everything she did. It could not have been better.

Danielle and her team have been providing house visits to our two (very active) boxers a couple of days during the week and on the occasional weekend for several months now. We have really appreciated knowing that our dogs are well cared for during the day when we're not home. We have also appreciated Danielle's flexibility when we've had last-minute changes in plans. We would definitely recommend her services to other pet owners!

Although, she has not had to catsit for us, we have spoken on the phone several times, and have actually gotten to know her during several long telephone conversations. We get along great, and we a shared cat care philosophy. My husband I are frequently out of the country, and we need a professional to check on our cats everyday, along with our house sitter and friend who come by to pet and play. We are going to meet in person next week and hire her to cat sit for us for almost 3 weeks in early 2017. We plan to use Kisses Happen from now on!

You can really tell that Tiffany has a knack for animals. We have two cats and a dog and I believe she loved them like her own! She sat with them while we were out of town, and upon our return they were clean and cared for just like we would have done!

I have used Amanda’s services about four times now and would never consider taking my cat elsewhere. I have a special needs cat who not only requires medication additions to his food, but also has "litterbox problems" which often results in bowel incontinence. While I'm fine with dealing with it, I would never expect anyone else to clean up after him or be so understanding; Amanda does all of the above. After I called her to inquire about her services, Amanda quickly set up an appointment to meet Brisket, my kitty, and asked a slew of questions about his health and needs. It turns out Amanda specializes in "special needs" animals and is an incredible wealth of knowledge! On one occasion, Brisket had injured his paw (scratching our furniture, ugh) after her last visit earlier in the day; we called her with no idea what to do and she calmly walked us through the steps of helping his claw. She texts us to make sure we returned safely, just to make sure Brisket is cared for! I really could not say enough positive things about Amanda. My cat loves her and we feel safe leaving him with her. If you ask her, she'll even text you little updates about your furry friends :) It's obvious she deeply cares about animals and is wonderful at her job.

      Ali takes care of our dogs when we go on vacation. She feeds them and walks them every day plays with them to make sure they aren't too lonely without us. She is easy to communicate with and responds very quickly to our questions. Since hiring Ali to care for our precious babies, we haven't hired anyone else.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      What does a dog walker do?

      We all know our dogs love going on long, adventure-filled walks, but jobs and family and commuting can make it difficult to give them the leash time they deserve. You can hire a professional dog walker to make sure your furry friend gets adequate exercise and outdoor time each day. A professional dog walker may be an individual contractor or work for a dedicated dog-walking company. In either case, you want to make sure the pro has the appropriate insurance in case of an emergency. Some people opt to give the dog walker a key to their house; others to have them pick up the dog from the yard. Dog walking can happen as often as multiple times per day, or just a few times a month as needed. Here are some questions to ask when you are interviewing a new dog walker:  

      • Will you or someone else be walking my dog?
      • Do you have a backup plan if you can’t make it for a scheduled walk?
      • Will you walk my dog by itself, or do you walk several dogs at once?
      • What are your different walk routes?
      • When will you pick up and drop off?
      • How will we communicate?
      • Do I have to commit to a schedule or are you flexible?
      • What’s your cancellation policy?
      • What’s your response plan if my dog gets injured or becomes sick?
      • How and how often do I pay you?
      • Do you offer package pricing if I buy multiple dog walks up front?

      What is included in a dog grooming?

      Dog grooming is so much more than giving your dog a bath. Dog grooming is a broad term that covers all aspects of canine cleanliness and hygiene. The services included in dog grooming will vary based on your needs and what you choose to pay. Unless they are rolling in cowpies or playing in mud puddles, most dogs are okay getting a shampoo bath only as needed. You’ll know when they need it if they smell bad or are bringing dirt into the house. Some dogs, like shepherds and shih tzus, have thick coats that can get matted and tangled without regular care. Pro dog groomers can deftly blow dry a dog’s hair after a bath so that it is shiny and smooth. Dog grooming can include brushing that detangles dog hair and also thins the undercoat to minimize shedding.

      Dog grooming also includes hygiene services such as toothbrushing and ear cleaning. Clean teeth are important to the health of your dog, and the pros have the patience and proper technique to get it done. Regular dog grooming can stave off tear stains, those reddish stains below your dog’s eyes. Anal gland expression is something not many people want to do on their own, even if they love their dog. A dog groomer can safely and efficiently release any blocked anal gland fluid. Other dog grooming services include nail trimming and clipping. Nationally, dog grooming prices range from $60 to $80. Most dog groomers offer discounts to customers who purchase monthly packages or bundle multiple grooming services at one time.

      What is a dog groomer?

      Keep your family dogs happy, healthy and clean with regular dog grooming. A dog groomer is a business owner or employee of a dog grooming business who specializes in dog hygiene and grooming. To find a reputable dog groomer, research reviews, ask for references and confirm that the groomer has good standing in the dog grooming community.

      A dog groomer should be comfortable and competent working with dogs of all breeds and temperaments. Typically a groomer will have trained with other groomers and taken educational courses to keep abreast of the latest safety information and techniques. There are brick-and-mortar dog grooming businesses, as well as mobile dog groomers who bring all their equipment and provide their services at your home or location. In some cases, brick-and-mortar businesses will also pick up and return your dog for an additional fee.

      What is a dog groomer?

      A dog groomer is a service professional who provides dog grooming and basic hygiene care for your dog. Dog groomers are typically animal lovers who are competent and comfortable working with a wide range of dog breeds and temperaments. Dog groomers are knowledgeable about the care needs for different kinds of dog coats. A poodle will have different haircut needs than a shih tzu, for example, so it pays to have a trained pro provide the proper cut. Good dog groomers know how to safely clean your dog’s teeth, bathe your dog, and cut their nails without going too short. They understand how to trim the hair from around your dog’s face, express anal glands, and clean your dog’s ears. Many people who choose dog grooming as a profession also pursue other dog services such as attending veterinary school, running a doggy day care center, working as a professional dog walker, and more.

      How much does it cost to groom a dog?

      Dog grooming costs depend on the service your pet requires. Nationally, the average price for dog grooming ranges from $40 to $100, varying by location. Not surprisingly, dog grooming on New York’s Upper East Side costs nearly double what it costs in a small town in Montana. Dog groomers typically handle every aspect of your dog’s beauty and hygiene, from tooth brushing to hairstyling. One potential way to save is to have your dog groomed at your doggy daycare — sometimes they offer discounts on dog grooming prices for clients. Here are some examples of average dog grooming costs in the San Francisco Bay Area. Please note these prices would include transportation fees for picking up and dropping off your dog to your home:

      • Nails: $30 a la carte or $20 when bundled with another service
      • Toothbrushing: $30 a la carte or $20 when bundled with another service
      • Tooth scraping (removal of plaque from teeth to prevent infection), with anesthesia: $600
      • Tooth scraping, without anesthesia: $400.
      • Wash and dry: $60
      • Ears: $30 a la carte or $20 when bundled with another service
      • Grooming package: $130 — includes wash, nails, teeth, ears, gland expression and haircut
